A couple small changes to the Schema hierarchy in the last 24 hours:
sameAs: "URL of a reference Web page that unambiguously indicates the item's identity. E.g. the URL of the item's Wikipedia page, Freebase page, or official website." (This property appears to be new.)
citation: "A citation or reference to another creative work, such as another publication, web page, scholarly article, etc." (This property was promoted into the CreativeWork type; it used to live only in the grandchild type MedicalScholarlyArticle.)

I guess I'm old, because I remember recommending against HTTPS since Google wouldn't index secure URLs. I think +Greg Boser was one of the ones to break the story that they finally started.

I most recently served as co-author on SEO Secrets with Danny Dover (formerly of SEOMoz). Prior to that, I wrote ClickZ's SEM column for three years (2007-2009). I also write for Intrapromote's blog when I have a chance.
